As we continue to live with COVID-19 and the many ways in which it impacts student life, we've set-up this section to share relevant information with Stanford's communities. We hope this will be helpful in navigating life on and off campus during Spring quarter.

Testing and Vaccine Guidance

To learn more about Verily or Color testing, please use the below tiles to access more information. 

VaccineFinder is a new web tool that can help identify providers who offer COVID-19 vaccines locally. It's important for students to let us know they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 so we can update the immunization section of their student medical record. Sign in to the VadenPatient portal and then follow the instructions to upload a copy of your completed COVID-19 immunization card.
